The first phase of a 1.2MW rooftop PV system in Slovenia has been completed. 783kW has so far been installed by Plan-net Solar with 230Wp polycrystalline modules from Upsolar. The entire system is due to be completed in the second quarter of 2012.
This will be the largest solar system to date in Slovenia for Upsolar. The company recently received salt and ammonia certification from BC LCIE China for its positive tolerance modules. Its presence in the region also includes an office in Athens, Greece, established in 2011.
European customers will benefit from Upsolar’s “Made in EU” certified polycrystalline modules, produced with locally sourced components. The company achieved this distinction in accordance with the Institute of Industrial Certification for Mechanics (ICIM).
“With teams in place across Europe, we are able to maintain growth in major markets while simultaneously exploring opportunities for expansion in developing areas,” said Enrico Carniato, Europe sales director for Upsolar. “By partnering with a trusted name like Plan-net Solar to bring our quality modules to Slovenia, we can assure local customers of a secure, long-term solar investment.”
“Our collaboration with Upsolar is a strong asset in our mission to expand solar implementation in Slovenia,” said Marko Femc, general manager of Plan-net Solar. “The company’s product variety, including modules equipped with power optimizer technology and unique framing options, is especially attractive to customers in this region. We’re confident our joint efforts will enhance the solar experience for our customer base and help to facilitate increased adoption of renewable energy across the greater Balkan region.”
